Listening to "Poppies Falling From The Sky" right now. "In The Poppy Fields" on this record is "next-f***ing-level"!!! "All Seeing" is not far behind. It's great to hear some of the newer stuff on this record. ... See MoreSee Less

I know that there is some controversy about Mike's updated Strength songs being played live, and that's a legit position for fans to take. However, as stand-alone tracks, some of the "new" stuff is really good. I'd go out and buy the new "Deeside" if it was a single from any modern band, ditto "Strength". We can argue up and down whether they should have the names of the old songs or not, but I think's undeniable that there some really great material on the records. It really makes me excited for his next, true "solo" record with a "Mike Peters" named attached to it. We have have not heard one of those in nearly 20 years, and it's about time. I think in many ways Mike can be unburdened by history and expectations on solo records and just write the best songs possible. Here's to hoping we get to hear a new MP solo record sooner than later. ... See MoreSee Less

Yea! I figured out how to write history notes and then back date them. They have to be attached to a photo. That should be easy!! I've got 1000's to post!
So this site is turning into a historical timeline of The Alarm. It's what I've always wanted to build, but for some reason Facebook is the perfect place for it. The tools are easy to use, and it reaches the most people. Sometimes the easiest answers are right in front of your face.
I'm not trying to take away from anyone else with this page. Not from the official Alarm sites, other Facebook sites, etc. This is simply a place for me to try to accomplish what I started out working on 25 years ago when I wrote my first article about The Alarm for Spiral Scratch. It's the (in)complete history of my favorite band. ... See MoreSee Less
One of the first web features I ever finished. I salute to the 10 year anniversary of The Spirit Of'86 show on April 12, 1986. I recall that this one included scanned photos, which at the time was not an easy thing to do as full-color flat-bed scanners were still very very expensive.
I thought it was so very important to salute the Spirit of '86 show. I always felt it was the top moment for The Alarm, but also represented a missed opportunity to take things to a much bigger level. ... See MoreSee Less

It's easy to forget, but thealarm.com was not always thealarm.com. It started as www.demon.co.uk/alarmpo, and in 1999 it became www.mikepetersweb.com. The Alarm Archive was the site that lived at www.thealarm.com. In 2000, there were 3 distinct sites: coloursound.com, thealarm.com, and MikPetersWeb.com, but they were all fed from the same backend and we used a domain name redirected to get you the correct site...whicth was really just a content filter and display over a single dynamic database of content. ...

I'm really loving the "timeline" aspect of the site here. It's what I always wanted from a web site about The Alarm: a virtual wall of history. Thanks Facebook! More to come... ... See MoreSee Less

This page is not just another page dedicated to the band The Alarm. I've been writing about The Alarm and working on web sites for the band and various members for 25 years. This page is dedicated to that band and the web sites, articles, stories, photos, and memories that have been lost along the way. ... See MoreSee Less
